Re: confused about swollen lymph nodes in pelvic area
I too would probably get a second opinion, if only to put your mind at rest. I had a small hard lymph node in the groin and when a ct scan was done, it showed up multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the mesentery. We do not know if the groin node was malignant but it did go away when I was treated for lymphoma of the mesentery nodes. It is better to be safe than sorry, particularly with your family history. If you do not feel comfortable waiting for two months, I would see someone else.
